On Friday, December 1st, SBS graduate students had the opportunity to chat with Vahid Ownjazayeri, Chief Growth Officer, DCS America’s AECOM. He shared his personal experiences in business; how he took every opportunity he had and made the best of it.  It was one of the best and most interesting Lunch with a Leader events to date. The company and the industry were different from what we have seen with other guests.

One of the most significant takeaways from Vahid’s discussion was to stay true to yourself, believe in yourself, and always be proud of where you come from. As for when you are looking for a job, don’t be afraid to reach out to someone in the company and take risks that will help you grow in your career.

This Lunch with a Leader was a great learning experience and I thank those who participated and hope more will in the future. Collectively the three LWL this fall have a been outstanding and can’t wait for the spring events.
